Pride Lyrics

[Intro: Bēkon]
Love's gonna get you killed
But pride’s gonna be
The death of you and you and me
And you and you and you and me
And you and you and you and me
And you and you and you and me and—

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar & Steve Lacy]
Me, I wasn't taught to share, but care
In another life, I surely was there
Me, I wasn't taught to share
But care, I care, I care

[Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
Hell-raising, wheel-chasing
New worldly possessions
Flesh-making, spirit-breaking
Which one would you lessen?
The better part, the human heart
You love ’em or dissect 'em
Happiness or flashiness?
How do you serve the question?
See, in a perfect world
I would be perfect, world
I don't trust people
Enough beyond they surface, world
I don't love people
Enough to put my faith in man
I put my faith in these lyrics
Hoping I make a band
I understand I ain't perfect
I probably won't come around
This time I might put you down
Last time I ain't give a f**k
I still feel the same now
My feelings might go numb
You're dealing with cold thumb
I’m willing to give up a leg
And arm to show empathy from
Pity parties and functions of you and yours
A perfect world, you probably live another 24
I can’t fake humble just
'cause your as*is insecure
I can’t fake humble just
'cause your as*is insecure

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar & Steve Lacy]
Me, I wasn't taught to share, but care
In another life, I surely was there
Me, I wasn't taught to share
But care, I care, I care

[Post-Chorus: Kendrick Lamar & Anna Wise]
Maybe I wasn’t there (We saw you first)
Maybe I wasn't there (I saw you first)
Maybe I wasn't there (I saw you first)
Maybe I wasn't there

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
Now, in a perfect world
I probably won't be insensitive
Cold as December
But never remember what winter did
I wouldn't blame you for mistakes
I made or the bed I laid
Seems like I point the finger
Just to make a point nowadays
Smiles and cold stares
The temperature goes there
Indigenous disposition
Feel like we belong here
I know the walls, they can listen
I wish they could talk back
The hurt becomes repetition
The love almost lost that
Sick venom in men and women
Overcome with pride
A perfect world is never perfect
Only filled with lies
Promises are broken and
More resentment come alive
Race barriers make inferior of you and I
See, in a perfect world
I'll choose faith over riches
I'll choose work over b!tches
I'll make schools out of prison
I'll take all the religions
And put 'em all in one service
Just to tell 'em we ain't sh!t
But He's been perfect, world

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar & Steve Lacy]
Me, I wasn't taught to share, but care
In another life, I surely was there
Me, I wasn't taught to share
But care, I care, I care

[Post-Chorus: Kendrick Lamar & Anna Wise]
Maybe I wasn't there (We saw you first)
Maybe I wasn't there (I saw you first)
Maybe I wasn't there (I saw you first)
Maybe I wasn't there
